Section 49AB of the Police Offences Act 1935 requires that a person must not organise or conduct a march, rally or demonstration (political or otherwise) without a permit if it is to be held wholly or partly on a public street.

A written application seeking a permit for the holding of a demonstration should be forwarded to the Commander of the nearest District police headquarters. There is no specific form to complete for the holding of a demonstration.

Event dependent, an eight week lead time is required to ensure your permit is approved in a timely fashion. Please contact the relevant office should your event fall outside of this time frame.
